Philadelphia Fundraising Office

Philadelphia Fundraising Office
The Philadelphia Office raises critical funds for City of Hope’s current research, treatment and education programs through fundraising events all year long. We hold events and raise awareness throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and New England.
Our fundraising events widely range from Walks to formal Spirit of Life® Award Galas to national employee giving campaigns to intimate local community engagement functions. To learn more about our local events, please visit our Events page, call us at 800-344-8169 or email at Philadelphia@coh.org.
Continuing a tradition that has been part of City of Hope for its entire 100 year history, we also host nearly 20 Volunteer Chapters from Pennsylvania to Massachusetts. Our local Chapters have been supporting City of Hope’s mission for almost 70 years, and continue to support the mission through their own fundraising efforts and events. Our Chapters have passed the torch down through the generations to their children and grandchildren to continue the local volunteer movement, with some family members starting their own Chapters with their own family, friends and colleagues. To learn about the Chapters in our area, click on the Chapters page, or call us at 800-344-8169.
